Did you know there are real health benefits to drinking coffee? Of course, that’s if you don’t overdo it. A new study revealed that’s sort of a magical range for the perfect “healthy” amount of coffee.
Drinking between 0.5 to 3 cups of coffee a day could come with heart-healthy benefits. In a recent study, researchers concluded:
- “Light-to-moderate coffee consumption was associated with a 12% lower risk of overall mortality.”
- “There was a 17% lower risk of death caused by cardiovascular diseases compared to non-coffee drinkers.”
- “From half to three cups of coffee was associated with a 21 % lower risk of stroke.”
So can drinking more than three cups be harmful then? Not necessarily. But according to researchers doing so won’t give you the same advantages. When discussing “heavy coffee-drinkers,” Dr. Pál Maurovich-Horvat, the Director of the Medical Imaging Centre at the Semmelweis University said, “there were no positive health benefits observed in this group—as in the group of the light-to-moderate drinkers.”
